Into the Wild. A Hide-and-Seek Game between a Narrator and His Character

Abstract : My aim in this study will be to tackle Christopher McCandless's personal quest under the influence of Tolstoy, Thoreau and London and analyse the illusive and elusive outcome of this quest. Since quest is supported by travel, I shall also analyse the degree to which Into the Wild meets the criteria of the picaresque novel at large. At a smaller level, I shall briefly deal with Krakauer's quest for the essence of his character and the writing style he employed to reach his goal.
